Summer’s here and it’s time to start packing in those summer memories! Our first stop of the summer was to African Lion Safari. Located smack dab between Toronto and London Ontario, it’s an easy car ride, made even better with a car packed full of excited kids! We left early in the morning anxious to take in all the park had to offer. Your admission into the African Lion Safari includes enough to easily fill one wonderful day.
Time is well spent in “Pet’s Corner”, so much cuteness! Have you ever taken a selfie with a camel? Add it to your bucket list!
I had to get a little bit of help with my selfie; that sneaky Camel kept trying to snack on my hair! (maybe this is a sign that I need more conditioner?)
Insider tip: Head to the Pet’s Corner first, you will have the entire area to yourself!
Take a ride on the “Nature Boy” Railway. My youngest visitors loved this one so much they wanted to do it twice!
Enjoy a cruise on the “African Queen” Boat and spy a variety of monkeys playing in the trees, and exotic birds hiding in the trees.
See the “Elephant Swim”! Check those programs because these giant elephants only swim a couple of times per day.
Don’t miss the educational and fun Bird and Animal Shows!
As well as my very favourite part of all, the Safari Bus Tour! You can pay an extra fee to board the bus with the family, or take your chances with the baboons and drive your own car. My advice, take the bus! Those wee baboons are a tad destructive!
A great way to end your day in the park is The Misumu Bay Wet Play Water Park!
Worth Noting: Parking is included in cost of admission. You can bring your own food into this park, or take advantage of one of the many dining options dotted around the park. This is not a nut free facility. If you are a CAA Member Show Your Card at the gate and save 10% off your tickets!
African Lion Safari is a fun and easy day for the entire family! Pack the sunscreen, some snacks and the camera, and enjoy the adventure!
